    Two racist, apartheid regimes and that looks like it was also his self-selected facebook profile pic:

    There was obviously a political motivation to what he did, especially if a survivor is saying that the suspect told them he had to do it since they were taking over the country.

    Why isn't this being classified as an act of terrorism?

    It is, by many.

    Hey, kudos on that birthday gift of a handgun, Dad! If that isn't the face of a young man properly equipped emotionally to handle a firearm, I don't know what is. You're a regular Mrs. Lanza, you stupid ****.

    Okay, thanks, I haven't been following closely enough to know for certain. Is the mainstream media classifying it as terrorism as well?

    The first thing he should have done was cut off that bowl cut

    I'm going to assume that you read as little as possible about the actual shooting

    To add to all this, his roomate said hes been talking about doing something like this for 6 months. Said he wanted to start a civil war. That sounds like a terrorist to me.

    To me at least, it seems like many of these mass shootings end with the gunman turning the gun on himself. Also, to me at least, it seems like almost all mass shootings are carried out by men. Ban guns from being in male hands and I think we are looking at zero future mass shootings.

    I haven't but its disheartening that everyone has to always mention race! why does race have to matter.

    If a black guy shot up a white church I doubt someone would say white church shot up..

    In order to end racism and hate we have to end the separation

    Are you following the right story? Black church is not a derogatory term, wait a sec? Are you on the right page?

    I find it very offensive.. It reminds me of when my grandmother who was born in 1927 and she told me they have white movie theaters as well as black theaters.. it is a form of separation.

    Yeah I also went to Stormfront after hearing this news (kind of like going to the zoo to laugh at the monkeys), but their thread about this attack has now degenerated into how they're the victims because the media isn't paying enough attention to black-on-white crimes instead of focusing on this one.

    Those Nazis sure know how to use up their sympathy points awful fast.

    "Hey, black people who were killed specifically because of their race, don't make this about race!"
